and john than. the other day rush limbaugh said i had done something he would have got in trouble for. please explain. i said that last year ted kennedy passed the torch of the kennedy brotherhood to barack obama making him the next kennedy, and it was so clear to everybody that's what was going on. he said if he had said something like that he would have been accused of making an ethnic slur because i used the word brother. i point out -- i said it at the time. not in an ethnic sense, not in a richelle sense, brother in the sense of sibling brother, actual brother. he jumped up and made himself into a victim again. what is the matter with these people? can't they take a week off? just take a week off. it's a funeral. take a week off from politics. >> if ted kennedy is one of the great senators of our time, rush limbaugh takes the crown as the great blowhard of our time. there's nobody who would have criticized rush limbaugh if he had talked about a brother because there's so many other things to criticize him for, other outrageous things that he says almost every day on the radio. so
are lashing out at democrats in the wake of kennedy's death. talk show host, rush limbaugh, is accusing the left of exploiting kennedy and his legacy to push through health care reform. and the group conservatives for patients right, says out of respect for kennedy, it is temporarily suspending its tv ad campaign, to defeat the government-run insurance option. >>> to many fellow politicians, he was a mentor and a close and thoughtful friend. from across the country, they have been sharing what kennedy meant to them. >> the country lost a great advocate. millions of people who counted on this guy every day to stand up for them. and for decades to come, history will talk about his legislative accomplishments and the differences he made in public policy. for me, i lost my best friend in the senate. >> diane and i will miss his company. his humor and his stories. his spot-on impersonations of other people in public life. his songs. >> a number of times over the years, and in every case, he was always asking what else could be done, to support our troopers and to support their families. >> h
a sentence that struck me in your book. i'll put it up on the screen. yet rush limbaugh has probably gotten more attention in the last six months than he has gotten in a long time and keith olbermann is not lacking the spotlight either. >> no, to me, it's the last hurrah of a discredited era where people substitute shouting instead of reasoned discussion. which, again, it's not going to go away overnight. but i think -- and people like glenn beck, rush limbaugh, keith olbermann are invested in a certain kind of anger. there is going to be a small number of americans who flock to that and respond to that. but a small number of americans is very good -- perfectly good business for a business model if you have a cable channel. >> that's a point i often make, you get a couple million people watching and you're a huge success, even though it's a small percentage of the culture. you write about the juvenilization of life, you say children scream and cry like glenn beck, but he is, at least by the standards of cable universe and radio talk shows a successful guy. you say it's a discredit to cultur
into politics next at the "morning meeting." rush limbaugh patting himself on the back on a prediction he made on the timing of ted kennedy's death. gecko vo: you see, it's not just telling people geico could save 'em hundreds on car insurance. it's actually doing it. gecko vo: businessmen say "hard work equals success." well, you're looking at, arguably, the world's most successful businessgecko. gecko vo: first rule of business: "hard work e" gecko vo: that's why geico is consistently rated excellent or better in terms of financial strength. gecko vo: second rule: "don't steal a coworker's egg salad, 'specially if it's marked "the gecko." come on people. was it really for fun, or to save money on heat? why? don't you think nordic tuesday is fun? oh no, it's fun... you know, if you are trying to cut costs, fedex can help. we've got express options, fast ground and freight service-- you can save money and keep the heat on. great idea. that is a great idea. well, if nordic tuesday wasn't so much fun. (announcer) we understand. you need to save money. fedex and my dog bailey and i love to hang
to identify the people with the legislation. >> savannah, we saw rush limbaugh, among others, sean hannity as well, begin in fact to criticize the notion that some democrats would call on other democrats to support ted kennedy's legacy and pass health care reform. do you expect that call will be made more formally for democrats and even some republicans? if so, do you think it will be effective? do you think he will have a gipper like opportunity? i have to ask you to hang on one moment. mark sanford is speaking, lieutenant governor has formally called on him to resign. sanford rejected that yesterday but we're going to hear what he has to say right now. >> i wanted to very briefly offer a couple of comments in light of a letter that we sent, our office sent back to david thomas yesterday. it really fits in this larger category of the response i gave yesterday to andrew bowers letter to my office in which in that letter i basically said two things. i said, one, let's not make decisions based on hyperbole, media accounts. let's make decisions on facts. two, when one looks at facts we have a

is she mangles a whole bunch of facts, but she also gets some signs off that rush limbaugh. go ahead and copy number of things she says that are wrong. roll the tape. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh. and he said early on i hope that he does. you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. now, when a senator says that this will be his waterloo, and we all know what happened at waterloo, then we have him and he fails. do we want a failed state of the united states russian ark so remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. and i want you to know, people look at the united states as a country that has changed its way and has elected someone from kenya and kansas. i will put it like that. >> that's quite a headline again. did you know that wreck obama was from kenya and kansas westerner and i think it's from fighting to eisenhower was from kansas. i'm from kansas. stu and his mother is from kansas and his father is from kenya.
chosen political calculation over courage. it's not surprising people like rush limbaugh -- what is surprising is that few in the senate who are conservative are willing to stand up for truth instead of the fringe. >> speaking of lies -- the government involvement is unconstitutional. do you agree? >> i haven't heard the quote. i would not say it's unconstitutional. >> so, she's wrong? >> if that's all there is to quote, i don't agree. if you're talking about who's misleading -- the president is tauging about a deficit -- >> how is he misrepresenting his previous stances, given the current system, he believes that the public option is the way to go and to protect the private health insurance market. what have you heard? >> in 2003, he said i for one believe in a single payer health care system. >> and said that he was starting the system from scratch. >> i don't believe he said that. also, he has said as many liberals have said, that this would lead to a single payer health care system. if people are confused, the president needs to go back and address this. >> sam, you get the l
as it would give ammunition to the people he describes as far right-wing whether it is rush limbaugh, sean hannity and the like and people he apparently feels have antipathy toward the black community and don't have a sincere passion to try to help uplift and so he says we don't need to have those people to give them ammunition. bill cosby said it's not a matter of earing dirty laundry. it isn't as if there are people who don't know about the problems, about the high dropout rate and don't know about the achievement gap between black and white children, who don't know about feet high incarceration rates and celebration of the drug culture. and i think it is just so difficult to have that conversation, steve. it's painful to hear it and then there are those as the caller points out will legitimately use that to distort that in some cases by use it to say we don't need social intervention to help those left behind and often left behind because of historical injustice in the society. so then it leads people i think into positions that are highly polarized and i am not going to admit to falls
as it would give ammunition to people he describes as the far right wing with it is rush limbaugh or sean and unity and the lights and people that apparently he feels has an antipathy toward the black community. don't have a sincere passion for helping uplift that community is so he says we don't need to have those people to give them ammunition. i think bill cosby said it's not a matter of airing dirty laundry. it's not as if there are people who don't know about the high dropout rates you don't know about the achievement gap between black and white children who don't know about the high incarceration rates and the celebration of the drug culture and as think it is so difficult to have the conversation. it is so painful for some to hear and then there are those who as the caller points out will legitimately use it to to distorted and in some cases use it to say we don't need social interventions to try to help those who have been left behind and often left behind because of historical and justice in society. said that if these people and thinking to positions that are highly polarized an
limbaugh listed an address of one of their headquarters in st. louis and urged people to show up. twitter feed telling people they were going to show up with guns at the headquarters. that doesn't strike me as the democratic, lowercase "d" style of protesting. i don't think anyone would really advocate that. i don't think it's proportionate to equate what's happening amoney these labor unions to threats of gun violence and charges of naziism. i just don't. >> we're going to get to john harwood and his interview later in the show. >>> this country's passed government-run health care before. how did johnson do it? it's very important for me to uh check my blood sugar before i go on stage. being on when i'm feeling low can be like a rollercoaster. it does at times feel like my body is telling me to do one thing... and, my mind, my heart is telling me to do something else. managing my highs and lows is super important. with my contour meter i can personalize my high/lo settings so it really does micromanage where my blood sugar needs to be. i'm nick jonas and never slowing down is my simple w
just tells a lot of whoppers now. believe me, rush limbaugh and sarah palin are saying some things extremely off the charts untrue of the plan but i wrote down some of the things balma said which was a whopper. he said everybody could keep their plan. six million are going to lose their plan. preventive medicine will cost $90 million. government would be out the health care decisions. he tells one thing after another making it seem so easy. believe me, this is not easy. it's going to take some sacrifices and some really painful cuts for people to get this system under control, and often, when i look at him, i think he's over-promising, not as much as the other side but to a significant degree. >> certainly not as much as other other side because the other side, i think, has gone beyond the pale. the fear is not just about this plan. there's a fear of robbing the land. i mean, between 2000 and 2009, the private sector basically didn't create any jobs in this country. there's a fear, if you live in ohio, you can't see your grandchildren unless you drive a car or bus somewhere because
the rush -- the rise, pardon me, decade-plus ago of rush limbaugh. today, you know, it's hard, man, it's hard for a guy like me because i get branded a conservative. you know i have never healed myself out that way. i have plenty of conservative views and plenty of liberal views but i constantly feel like i'm swimming upstream because the people who tune in, they expect that that's what they're going to get, and, frankly, many of them are seeking that level of reassurance. i'm not there to offer you reassurance. i'm there to hopefully ask entertaining and probing questions and not to browbeat. >> let's take a look at some more of the president on your program. he's talking about misinformation. i wonder if that's his problem or his problem is people really do have a sense of what he's doing and a lot of people in the center right as well as the right don't want him to do it, which is increase the federal role in taking responsibility for ensuring people's health. i'm not sure the right and center right are comfortable with this basic idea of taking national responsibility for people wh
remember it's time to do the right thing. >> it's interesting, ron, you've got rush limbaugh, he brought up paul wellstone's memorial service in 2002 and said it was a cheerleading session -- >> which is wrong, tamron. >> i'll let you get to t i want to play rush and then alicia and ron, you can talk about this back and forth and who is really using ted kennedy's name. go ahead. let's play it. >> before this week is out, do you remember the wellstone memorial? that was a frat party compared to what's going to happen here. this is going to be something to see. it's going -- they're not going to be able to control themselves. they're going to turn this into the biggest political rally you have ever seen. they can't help themselves. they're leftists. >> ron, i will let you get in on it first. >> i hope rush is wrong. senator kennedy has done many admirable things. i hope rush is wrong and it's not turned into a political rally, but i fear it might be. >> rush, as usual, he's not only wrong, he's incredible crass and disgusting here. the idea senator wellstone when he died, there were eight dif
limbaugh and has the radio host, surprise, surprise, fighting back. what is up? >> what is up? nothing like a good hip-hop battle, is there? jay-z is in a new one now with bill o'reilly and rush limbaugh. the new song comes out next friday. he says it want black versus white, my man, please tell bill owl reilly to fall back and 2010 and that is mild dish but he knows who not to attack or not to retort because the man said had a perpendicular response that requires ear must haves for the kitty, i quote. i remind jay-z it is president obama who once mandated superstition. what? what? no magic negro stuff? what is going on? you're never going to get who might have been a weed smoker among the small pharmacies worth of drugs found, the police -- by the police in neverland mansion, multiple bags of marijuana plus rolling papers. it can't be certain michael jackson himself was toking but if he was, why was wasn't he getting stoned to go to sleep instead of taking the cocktail of prescriptions to get to sleep? lesson for the kids. >> if you're looking for a pharmaceutical combination for sleep and
massachusetts and signed into law a healthcare plan with $50 co-pay for abortion. what did rush limbaugh and others from fox news let this guy go by? why did christian leadership endorsed this guy? guest: it is a great country. you can say anything you want if you do not believe in the laws. the supreme court does not tell me what to do, i believe in it, it is not legal. fine, make a choice. run for yourself, become president -- we will debated. that is part of the backdrop, anger and frustration that people have, that is the backdrop for the next campaign. host: here, a reporter spending new year's eve in iowa. the following tuesday was in new hampshire. it was an extraordinary five-day window that shaped the race. guest: no question, that was one the most intense periods in the campaign. january 3, barack obama wins iowa, and it easily in the three-way race. host: what about john edwards? what if he had guest: won iowa it is one of the great if's. even if john edwards had one eye when he could not have been the nominee -- even if he hadwon iowa. if obama one had finished third in iowa
the last minute to talk about that episode. he became the soaring, rush limbaugh and others said you will be biased in your hosts in this debate and the walter cronkite. it was to be the subject of that furious continent -- controversy for a while? >> guest: i use it but at the time i was presented by my little possy who do not let me see a lot of what was said in which was a good thing because afterward and said it my god i never would have done this because there's senes but it was helpful. people like rush limbaugh who is an entertainer and can say whatever he dislikes but did not a i mean and the people i thought i knew and should have it is a small effort to get it right and those of the people who i felt unfairly treated by the people who i did not know who were mean to me i didn't care and the vast majority in turned out for people who did know and work with me and who immediately sent this can't be sure and i felt vindicated by that. >> host: thank you, gwen ifill, author of a "the breakthrough: politics and race in the age of obama". also visible on your local pbs statio

. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh ap he said early on, i hope that he fails. do you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. so remember, they are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me fai fails. >> wow, that was california congress woman diane watson at a town hall meeting in los angeles and that's not the only shocking thing she had to say. there is even more. joining me to weigh in is radio talk show host and fox news contributor mike gallagher been a while. >> it's been a while. i don't know if president obama would be complimented or offended to hear that he looks like her, he may not like that comparis comparison. >> that's another question. you bring up a good point. i'll bet the president wantsening to do with that comment because the president does not want race brought into the equation ands' made that very clear. why did diane watson oon make it an issue. she knows rush limbaugh criticism has nothing to do with race so why bring it up? >
to rush limbaugh or something. what? the government? no, they got to be out of it. as though he had base -- base-itis or something. >> i don't know. i don't know. lil we, what do you think? >> i think -- i think we should go to politico? >> isn't that something, though? he did. he gets in a lot of trouble. >> well, you know. he is kind of a shoots from the hip a little bit. >> he does. >> by the way he operates and sometimes that gets him in a little bit of trouble i guess you can say. >> maybe behind the scenes and starts the raise money and organizing and things such as this. >> if your interview. >> stop being interviewed. unless on this show. >> always welcome here. >> so who do we have got politico? >> patrick flavin. let's talk about the politics. but the politics of the passing of the ted kennedy, you eve heard whispers already, some democrats about the health care debate saying let's win this one for teddy. they have to be careful with that, though, don't they? >> they do. for two reasons, for democrats the name of kennedy is golden and cherished but the name kennedy means libera
those. >> okay. >> i did find your article interesting yesterday. rush limbaugh showed great restraint, saying that he felt uncomfortable saying anything negative about senator kennedy as did michelle maul klkin, shed other republicans, back off. >> the only thing he said was senator kennedy was lion and we were his prey. that was actually pretty tame. chap paquiddick was one of the biggest buzz words online. ted kennedy may get the last word or a piece of his critics more in death than life. he has a new memoir coming out, being buds as his most open and honest discussions about some of the things that have taken place in his past. you have to assume chappaquiddick is one of those a. lot of critics say we think he should have talked about it more and apologized more and perhaps his book will put it to rest. >> he hasn't talked about it in 40 years and every time asked, said i answered those questions. anniversary coming up, not a good one in a couple weeks. the anniversary of the fall of lehman brothers, hard to believe it's been a year. september 15th. how will the white house mark t
is getting anything out of this debate right now except maybe rush limbaugh and sean hannity. they make millions of dollars a week, you know, just keeping this disaster going, this division. but actually, i am educated as well as a lot of people out here listening. and when i look for a bill, what is my money going for? i want it to be a republican bill versus a democratic bill, and discuss the issues rather than just making up -- i do not know. host: are you getting -- are you paying attention to all the back and forth from "hardball" to cnn to glenn beck? caller: yes, but i do not appreciate it because i do not know what bill they are talking about. we have three different bills, and so far as a republican i see that we do not have a bill. so what are we talking about? host: the three bills on the house side are -with the house ways and means, on the senate side is the health, education, and labor committee. there is no final bill yet until sometime in the fall. the president indicating that that vote could come in november or even into december. the front page of "the washington time
him a break. they really should give him a break. people like rush limbaugh and i cat think of the name on fox news, he really irritates me. i mean, barack obama cannot do anything, he can't even -- with all the people sittingomething critical. but i want to ask a question, sir. do you think he's going to become a great president? >> guest: it is too early to say. how can you do that? or could be a great president was something that he thought about at the earliest stages of trying to decide whether or not to run. and again this is pretty much the second chapter of the book where, you know, he and his friends are discussing what makes a good president, in his opinion the sort of mixture of the person and the time and that is why he thought ronald reagan was probably the great president and even though he opposed pretty much every single one of his policies the character, the leadership of the individual with the time and the country boss ready for that kind of change. now he went public with that approach and that observation around the time of the nevada caucus and the sout
. that is one of the reasons they hate rush limbaugh so much because they --, because he makes fun of liberals so much. one of the reasons blockers are effective is most of you don't live in washington. you live somewhere else, you don't have to go to those cocktail parties and be beaten down all the time. i also want to encourage you to get the tools. i mean get training. it is not enough to come to one conference and think that you now know everything there is. everybody is learning. i am always striving to be a better writer. go to conferences, read books. i would encourage you to get the logistical tools come a blackberry or an iphone that allows you to videotape things like town hall meetings. a video camera might come in handy in one of those events. everybody in this room should be on twitter. no. 3 is get the networks. -- is guilty networkeet network. i know a couple of people from a nrcc are here today. get to know them. if you are a republican, they can plug you in paris state principled. conservative blogger is make a mistake of siding with the bush administration whether it was med
